    Title: 100 Words that Make the English
    Author: THORNE TONY

    Englishness is an ancient and powerful concept, but no one seems sure exactly what it means in the twenty-first century. In exploring our national identity, Tony Thorne has compiled a fascinating compendium of the hundred words and phrases that have become the cornerstones of modern English, and have been used ? sometimes deliberately, but often inadvertently ? to stake out our common ground, to define what makes us essentially English, and thus different from those beastly foreigners who lurk just off our shores.
